On Monday morning, Home Minister Amit Shah announced in Rajya Sabha that the government has decided to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution, which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir, which now ceases to be a state. The government has announced its decision that the state would be bifurcated into two Union territories. The first would be called Jammu and Kashmir, which will have a legislature. The other will be Ladakh, which will not have a legislature. Section 144 has been imposed in the valley since midnight, as a result of which internet and mobile services have been suspended. Public gatherings have also been banned. Three of Jammu and Kashmir's prominent politicians Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and Sajjad Lone -- have been put under house arrest.

Many celebrities from both Bollywood and Television have turned up on social media to give their reaction on government's decision which includes also actors like Iqbal Khan  and Anupam Kher who were born in J & K.

Here are the celebrity reactions: 

Yo Yo Honey Singh: "Kashmir is finally free to grow, free to make a future. #Article370"

Kunal Kohli: "History unfolding in front of our eyes #Article370 #Article35A #kashmir"

"THE fundamental difference between states and union territory is states are the administrative units having their own governments. whereas UTs are ruled directly by the central government through Lieutenant Governor as the administrator."

"2 new union territories created out of the state of #JammuKashmir. I just hope n pray there’s peace n stability in the region finally."

"The argument that the scrapping of #Article370 #Article35A is unconstitutional doesn’t hold.If at a time it was fair to apply it,It’s fair to remove it when it isn’t working. It was never meant to be permanent. Can’t get diff results doing the same thing."

Gul Panag: "370 gone! That was an incredibly bold move. Good luck @PMOIndia @HMOIndia"

"I do hope that the lives of the average Kashmiri will change for the better in the future. And also, for now, that their connectivity is restored so we can hear what they have to say too. #370Abolished"

TV Actor Gurmeet Choudhary: "Ever since i spent my childhood in the army camps in #Kashmir i always thought i belonged there. Now with the repealing of #article370 my dream of buying a house & doing business in #kashmir will soon turn into a reality. Kudos on the landmark judgement. Thrilled Jai hind"

Gulshan Devaiah: "Politics in full bloom today. Good or bad I cannot decide, but definitely a very bold move that will change something for the future #Kashmir"
